The Green Party has always told the truth about the state of the environment, the risks to our health and the damage to the future of our children on a planet facing a climate crisis. Without the voice of Caroline Lucas MP, Westminster would not have had th ekey issues raised and right now, we need more 'Carolines'. It's more than the environment though; it's about pushing for a type of politics that isn't just blue or red but more representative of the divers e views within the population.
Here in Lancashire like most places across the UK, our communities are dealing with the impacts of harsh, deep cuts to services; experiencing the awful impacts of austerity that drive our residents to food banks and witnessing the loss of vital services like libraries, bus routes and social centres. Our local area is also enduring the additional and very real concern that comes with the arrival of the shale gas industry. Fracking risks our air, water and soil quality as well as the health of residents; and then there's the climate crisis that we acknowledge means 'no more fossil fuels'!
The Blackpool & Fylde Green Party has fought the harms of fracking and raised awareness first in 2010 and again since January 2017 when the company Cuadrilla returned to frack after having the local council REJECTION of planning, overturned. We've cleaned up parks and beaches, stood with communities in need and now, we are aiming to get our candidates winning elections. The Green Party doesn't take money from big corporations so it's up to each local Party to do its bit to be self-sustaining and that's where you come in. Please help us to set aside enough to fight for the seats, that so urgently need Green representatives in them.
Your kind support can make all the difference to our Party getting another Green elected, please help and share this fundraiser so others can too.
We're so grateful for your support.
